Assez drôle cette image de foulque hippie. Il fallait la voir et tu en as fait une superbe image. Bon cadrage, excellente netteté et de superbes couleurs naturelles. Bien vu!

Pierre, I am pleased to know that my picture of a Common Emigrant appealed to you. Thanks!
We may not have interacted much in the past through our pictures, so this is a good opportunity for me to look at your latest creation and write my honest views on it.
I have never seen a Coot in my life. The first I heard of this bird was from a poem 'The Brook' by Tennyson, the famous British poet, when I was in college and had to read this poem as a part of my course in English language. Now I see one in your picture, albeit a juvenile and not fully grown yet. You have taken this picture from a fairly good perspective and I am able to notice that it is a dark bird with a white face. The long strands of white hair (or is it feathers?) on its crown give it a special look. The gently rippling water surface makes a suitable background for the bird and the picture as a whole leaves a good impression on me.
As for your note, it is not of any use for me because it tells me nothing about this species of water birds.

I like your hippie very much!
This is a stunning shot, all details are seen with such great clarity, but not just because of that, because of the fact that this image is presented with no pretense. Just like it should be, and with a cuteness factor too. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
